A variety of large bat, the flying fox (Q. "ruscor ramaiter") made its home amid brambles or in the tops of dense, partially-submerged trees of the coastal wetlands. They were most common in the marshes and scrublands of the East, although a few smaller varieties made their homes in Near Rhûn and one group lived in southern Eriador.
Unlike most bats, the flying fox throve in daylight, having good eyesight and a refined sense of smell. Using its long snout, it hunted rodents in the scrub and bit wild berries which might elude its more flatfaced cousins.
